    I listen to your station from daylight to dark. The country cafe and roach’ s ranch are my favorites
    My choice of music that I grew up with is classic country. Keep up the great work and don’t ever get rid of Dennis. He’s the best.

    Was wondering if you have played one of my favorite songs. It is by Steve Lawrence and Edie Gourmet. It is called “I Wouldn’t Trade Christmas”. It just would not be Christmas without that song. (Just like Jim Reeves). Love listening to Coastal for sure. Thank you.

      Hi Faith, thanks so much for your message! We looked and looked, and I talked to Bill about your song. Any chance you’re thinking of the Sinatra Family doing “I Wouldn’t Trade Christmas?” As far as we can tell, Steve and Eydie didn’t do that one!! But, I’ve put the Sinatra Family’s version into this week’s Flashback Friday, and I also put in Steve and Eydie’s “That Holiday” for Friday night. Hope this helps, Merry Christmas, and thanks for your support!

    To The Coast Radio Station you operate one of the best. Great Local programming, David Gillis with Cape Breton Fiddle Tunes and Sunday nights Celtic Serenade and Sentimental Journey, keep up great programming. I also listen to Dave Wilson every morning as I get ready for work. Thank goodness for your live streaming otherwise I would be stuck here in Waltham Massachusetts listening to the junk they play on the radio here.

    Hello The Coast! Wanted to say just how much this radio station means to me. I religiously listen in the mornings as I’m getting the kids ready for school and your east coast vibe always puts me in a great mood. Keep up the great work! You have a huge fan here in Ontario!
